10.1. Security Center

Once you've installed Service Pack 2, your Control Panel contains a new icon called Security Center. It's an easy-to-understand status report on three important security features: Firewall, Automatic Update, and Virus Protection. If any of these are turned off, dire messages appear on your screen at startup and as balloons in your notification area (Figure 10-2, top).
